Brickwork is a form of masonry that utilises bricks and mortar. Rows of bricks—or, 'courses'—are placed on top of each other in order to create a structure such as a wall. This is volume I of William Frost's “The Modern Bricklayer”, a detailed guide to all aspects of bricklaying, including slating, tiling, planning, materials, tools, and more. Contents include: “House Drains”, “Egg-Shaped and Circular Sewers”, “Sand Courses”, “Retaining Walls”, “Reinforced Brickwork”, “Arches”, “Cornices”, “Gauged Brickwork: Introduction”, “Gauged Work—Various Forms of Arches”, “Gauges Work—Arches”, “Gauged Work: Ninches, Panels, and Mouldings”, “Terra-cotta and Glazed Ware”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on DIY.
